Song: Kissing Her

Artist: Christa

Genre(s): Pop

A retro-sounding pop ballad, Kissing Her, makes it to Songperk this week. The song grabs your attention from the moment it starts and settles into its groove early on. ¬†Crooning about a cheating boyfriend, Christa’s voice sounds like a dream, unique in its texture and super-smooth. The noticeably girl-like vocals, almost a rarity these days, highlight the track. Not just the singing, even the arrangements and instruments spell ‘old-timey’, with the guitars setting up the mood, aided by the electric piano touches. All these work in favour of the song, and help it truly stand out in this age of electronic music.
